Nominations Announced: 60th GRAMMY Awards
Join the GRAMMY Museum for a special screening of the first episode from HBO’s, The Defiant Ones, which is currently nominated for Best Music Film for the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards. The four-part documentary series tells the stories of Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre – one the son of a Brooklyn longshoreman, the other straight out of Compton – their improbable partnership and surprising leading roles in a series of transformative events in contemporary culture. Following the screening, GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman will host Iovine and Director Allen Hughes for an intimate conversation on the series
The GRAMMY Museum will pay tribute to one of America’s most beloved songwriters with a special program dedicated to the music of the late John D. Loudermilk. Performers scheduled to appear include John Jorgenson, John McFee, Herb Pedersen, Harry Stinson, Mike Loudermilk, and Beth Hooker, with bassist Mark Fain and drummer Charlie Morgan. The performers were all a part of A Tribute To John D. Loudermilk, a live album released Sept. 15, 2017 on Vector Recordings (distributed by BFD/Orchard). The project was recorded in 2016 during a concert at the Franklin Theatre in Franklin, Tenn., that included performances by Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell, Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver, Ricky Skaggs, and many others. GRAMMY®-winning multi-instrumentalist John Jorgenson served as musical director for the project, as well as co-producer with his wife, Dixie Gamble. Jorgenson also played several different instruments on the live recordings and co-produced the forthcoming PBS special and 24-track album, plus mixed and mastered the album. The evening will feature an intimate Q&A and performance, hosted by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman. Although ailing at the time, Loudermilk was on hand to witness this outpouring of love and respect. He passed away on Sept. 21, 2016, at the age of 82.
